colours again

Posted in: General

‘Shimmer’ + “Dromedary’ = the new colour scheme in my parents’ kitchen.
Ok – now guess what this really means!!
Go on.
Clue: I was most taken aback when I saw it.
True to form my parents coincided the application of the new colour scheme with a convenient holiday when they were assured at least some of their children/labourers would be in attendance.
No roast lunch for me.
Instead a crappy paintbrush.
Hope you had a Happy Easter.

    Your mum actually went for a colour called ‘Shimmer’?

    Obviously their kitchen is not worthy of the paint colour “schmelli”.

    No roast lunch??? On Easter??? That’s an atrocity!!

    OK, I’ll throw my hat into the ring…

    Shimmer = Pearly / ivory OR Very pale pink
    Dromedary = Pale beige OR Lightish orange

    How did I go?

    Oooh, Kathy, not a bad guess at all.
    ‘Shimmer’ actually = blue (think Mount Franklin Mineral Water bottle tops);
    but ‘Dromedary’ is somewhere between pale beige and lightish orange.
    The trim is a darker blue but I’ve forgotten the name of the colour.
    It would not be my choice for a colour scheme however a new lick o’ paint does give a rooma lift!
